Hello,

 

My mother in law has moved into a new house, it appears to have a aerial fibre install however where the fibre cable penetrates the exterior wall there is this white Chorus box but no ONT.

 

 

It has a single RJ45 connection (she plugged in the yellow Ethernet cable) and a green rectangular connection. Sorry its a bad photo but its what she sent.

 

 

 

 

Is this a termination box for the fibre that is then plugged into the ONT box and the previous tenants/owners took the ONT with them or something else?

 

 

 

Thanks

 

Chris

yep looks like its missing the ONT from on top of it. the green connection on the right should go to the ONT

Thanks Jase for confirming, any idea how to organise a whole new ONT? Chorus' website only mentions replacement power supplies.

Contact the ISP and they'll be able to get it sorted.

The number of threads i see on GKZ about missing ont's, power supplies and so on... how hard is it for chorus/np/uff/enable to put a warning sticker on them to say 'property of xxx, do not remove from this location'

Nope not at all. Nothing on the Chorus ONTs I've seen. (Have not seen the other LFCs ONTs). Can't blame people for not being able to read something that isn't there I'm afraid.

my feeling is bright neon pink blue yellow orange hazmat grade, not some dinky label attached to the power cable. 

 

but anyway, my view....

Hopefully Chorus don't charge your MIL for the replacement ONT like we've seen previously!

Nothing on the ONT itself but the model 300's have it on the end of the power cable.

 

mine is like that as i use a constant vigil sentry to power the router and ONT.

So, I can take the ONT, but not the power cable? 🤣

Nope. What would you do with it, anyway? Wire it up yourself?

Where is the house? It is quite yellowed, it’s not in an old telecom fibre trial area is it?

Edit: just noticed the chorus logo, still which part of the country is the house in
